SE Measurements with a TEM Cell to Study Gasket Reliability


In this paper a near-field Shielding Effectiveness measurement approach for highly conductive gaskets while maintaining the interface is presented. SE measurements of initial gasket performance along with reliability data in hostile environments are vital for predicting a gasket performance in conjunction with specific joint surfaces. The TEM cell method reported herein offers an analytical approach for studying aging and reliability of gaskets and metal contact interfaces in place. Preserving the gasket-metal interface is critical throughout the testing and aging steps, which is an important advantage of this methodology.
